LINTHICUM, M.D., February 19th, 2013— NFM, Inc. is proud to announce that Robert (Bob) N. Tyson III has been named the new Chief Operations Officer of NFM, Inc.

Bob Tyson has been NFM’s Executive Vice President of Lending since 2009. He oversaw the capital and secondary markets, and warehousing departments. With over ten years of mortgage experience he is no stranger to the COO role; he has held this position previously at Metrocities Mortgage and Fidelity & Trust Mortgage.  He has had over 10 years of mortgage experience.

David Silverman, NFM, Inc.’s CEO, said, “Bobby knows mortgage operations inside and out and has a real handle on what this Company needs to drive towards its vision at the highest level.”

Tyson went to school at Gettysburg College, earning his bachelor of arts in political science. After college Bob joined the Marines as an Officer and during his last tour he was a Company Commanding Officer.

During his time as the EVP of Lending at NFM, Inc., Bob helped build our retail and purchase presence for the east coast. In addition, he has been the driving force behind growing our hedging department. Due to his leadership, we have been able to bring in a very high number of hedged loans per month. With the help of  Bob, our new Underwriting department and sales team now have the useful tools such as risk grids to help manage investor guidelines and  minimize our risk. Tyson is extremely personable—he often is the go-to person for questions about most of our departments. Even though he is a “numbers guy” he still knows how to put people at ease and make them laugh. He is an incredible asset to our company and we know that with his help we will be able to achieve outstanding profit margins and  grow our staff to their fullest potential. We know that Bob is going to be an excellent COO for years to come.

Bob Tyson shares his hopes for 2013: “I want us to continue to add top level talent to the organization. This is key for us in terms of continuing our growth pattern.”

All of us at NFM, Inc. are thrilled to have such a knowledgeable person step into such a critical role.
